Lovingly handcrafted in Argentina The Champ is an homage to yet another racing hero: Alberto Ascari (nicknamed Ciccio) who won some of the early world championship titles while these were hotly contested. A rightfully proud Italian racer, who came up in a family that seemed to nurture them, whatever the cost. Ciccio was Ferrari’s first titleholder and was one of the most prolific drivers of his era and managed a glorious career, even if he dove in the Monaco harbour with a D50 at one point. He was always to be seen with his aquamarine helmet that we could not recreate.

The helmet shell is built from a base moulded from resin and fibres while it’s inside is lined with the natural cork of 3 mm (0.11 in) thickness.  All straps are crafted from the finest real cow leather while the padding and covers are stitched from 100% cotton. The grey outer fabric smartly contrasts with both the aged leather straps and metal buckle and the inner leather lining. Another stunning detail: The Champ has small metal arrows right under the Suixtil logo, to hold the strap of the goggles in place while driving – how thoughtful – while the back leather strap is embossed, as it should be.

This beautiful piece is sure to attract a lot of attention with its gorgeous patina and is crafted to the highest standard.  It arrives nicely packed in a linen bag that you can use whenever taking the helmet to a track day or an event.

The Champ comes in 3 sizes (thanks to an easy to install foam adjustment ring) that accommodates head sizes from 56 to 64 cm (22 to 25.5′) and is delivered by courier within 7 days of its order.
